I have served as the alumnae reference chairman for my sorority for the past two years and rush seemed brutal to me this year. This is just my observation--not based on hard and fast facts--that a darling girl with a high GPA and ACT can go through rush and if she doesn't know anyone, she may be in trouble. It's better to have someone in the sorority standing up for you than having a 4.0 and 32 ACT. Hope that makes sense. No, hazing in the sororities is not a problem. Our national chapter would come down hard and fast for that. Now, in the fraternities at LSU, I hear it definitely still exists.
